Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

self portrait

29 December 2013



I’m an afterthought,

An overused ellipsis

In the paragraphs of life.

I’m colloquial,

Quaint in ambiguity,

Dry kindling for gossip fires.

I’m a question mark,

Paradox and conundrum,

Mystery you’ll never solve.

I am the quiet,

Within the shadowed silence,

A mirage you’ll second guess.

I am reflection,

A self-portrait unfinished,

A truth no one ever sees.
